This text applies a variety of research-based methods and validates the relevance of educational psychology with two types of cases found in each chapter, both aligned set of high-order activities and learning objectives. "Putting it All Together" cases model quality teaching practices that are based on the educational psychology theories and research covered by each chapter. This case-based activity is designed to help students identify educational psychology principles in action and to show the usefulness and relevance of educational psychology to the teaching profession. "Problem Solving in the Classroom" cases have been designed to help students develop a realistic view about teaching and promote their problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. With this case, students employ a problem-solving framework to work through the classroom dilemmas presented in each chapter's Problem Solving in the Classroom. Roxana Moreno encourages reflection and critical thinking throughout her first edition by underscoring essential skills for reflection and self-evaluation, in addition to the classroom case activities: Assess Your Prior Knowledge and Beliefs. Each chapter begins with this set of open-ended questions and students reflect on their prior knowledge, experiences, and beliefs about the chapter's central topics. Imagine You Are the Teacher. Each chapter opens with a short scenario that functions as a schema activator and places the reader in a classroom situation, encouraging reflection on the topics examined in the chapter. Think About It Again! At the end of each chapter, this activity promotes student awareness of misconceptions, biases, and beliefs they may have and allows them to engage in the practice of becoming a reflective practitioner by looking back on the earlier thoughts and identifying whether and how their ideas have changed. Issues in Education includes a set of debates on current controversial topics such as brain-based education, the use of rewards in the classroom, and student retention. Educational Psychology integrates discussion of diversity within each chapter. Specifically, it begins with a focus on the diversity of the student in Chapter 2. Subsequent chapters integrate information about student diversity into the discussion. Also, this book integrates content across chapters in the feature Connect What You Learned to Other Chapters. In this feature, students make meaningful connections between new concepts with those learned in prior chapters.Every chapter: Visually introduces students to a Concept Map which graphically presents the chapter's content as an advance organizer providing students with a visual representation of the topics. Entails Learning Goals as an advance organizer, listing the topics students will be learning about in the chapter. &a
